Top 10 taste sensations in New Zealand, North & South magazine
"...we have...no fewer than 6850 Restaurants, Cafes, Coffee Houses and Caterers in our midst. North & South's food writers have nominated the Top 10 Restaurants they can't live without..."
Martin Bosley's was selected in the Top 10:
"You're always assured of a curious combination of flavours at Martin Bosley's consistently good Oriental Bay Restaurant. Situated over the water, every table in this small yet cleverly designed space has a view across the harbour,and there is even an outdoor balcony for when Wellington turns on it's true clear-blue sunny days".
Inside it's a tricky long narrow room,white walled with exposed overhead beams. Despite it's upmarket clientele of CEO'S, Judges and astute foodies, Bosley's - with it's crisp white linen and comfy high backed chairs - has a warm and relaxing feel. And just when you're in the thick of gustatory pleasure, Bosley himself will wander out in his food-splattered chef's whites, to chat and check that his diners are happy.
Happy clientele will be eating gorgeous food...you begin to see what's meant by curious flavour combinations, but they work well. Bosley doesn't do silly.
He does what is arguably Wellington's best Restaurant wine list, focussed on nearby regions Martinborough and Marlborough. This Restaurant has been pompousley dubbed 'Avant Garde Haute Cuisine' but I'd rather call it good New Zealand food cooked how you'd never manage it yourself."
